Cartoonist offers subtle jab, overt hilarity


Okay, let me try to explain the brilliant nuance behind this cartoon for some of our slower readers (Chris W, I'm looking in your direction):

You see, A-Rod is now even more hated than he was last year due to his recent admission of steroid use. "But Jack, why in the cartoon does A-Rod still has plenty of zealous fans, despite being exposed as a lying cheater?" you ask. It's quite simple, look closely at those "A-Rod fans." What common themes do we notice?

They're all ripped; the men wear skin tight shirts (some without sleaves), and the women wear bikinis highlighting their androgenous physique.

So if A-Rod is hated by almost all fans, but still has a large following among muscular, image conscious men, and huge women, then we must conclude that A-Rod's only fans are:

Gays and women who are more masculine than A-Rod himself! And no one wants those social pariahs as fans! Get it!? Hysterical!

the best part of that cartoon is, clearly, hulk hogan in the front row wearing the championship belt.

I'm pretty partial to the roided up Charlie Brown in the lower left.

I'm wondering where the arm just to the right of the "We <3 A-Rod" sign originates.

And the hand growing from the guy's head on the right... thank you Roger Clemens.
